Northwest Conference on Teaching for Social Justice

Dear Writing Project Colleagues,

I attend many conferences every year, and there is not one conference I enjoy more than the NWT4SJ conference. Last year over 1200 teachers, teacher educators, student teachers, and community activists attended the conference. This year the conference will be held in Seattle on October 17th at Chief Sealth High School in Seattle.

Now is the time to submit your conference proposal. We are looking for detailed proposals with a clear social justice theme. Many of your presentations for your local Writing Project could be tailored for this conference. I have linked the URLs, so you can learn more about the organization, which is a collaboration of teachers from Oregon and Washington, and access the workshop proposal application. We receive no money from corporations.  

Our keynote this year is David Stovall:

See you in Seattle.
